We love the companion show hosted by Chris Hardwick on AMC for Walking Dead (his show “Talking Dead” is a great way to talk about what just happened in that episode – so we wonder if they will do this for Bates Motel?)… Hope so.

Have you seen “Fright Night” yet?

Check out these new clips from the movie, it’s not all scary there are some streams of comedy sewn in. What’s too big or not big enough when it comes to crosses and vampires?

For that matter… isn’t his stake kinda short in length?

What do I know – but I can tell you that “Fright Night” was a great movie and when we were in the theatre there were lots of people with popcorn getting shaken up. We won’t, however, divulge who in our crew jumped and grabbed for a hand during some scenes…

“Like” FRIGHT NIGHT on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/#!/frightnightmovie

Better yet – don’t wait for the weekend – check it out tonight!

Have you been bitten yet? Movies to see this weekend? Fright Night

What happens when your mother doesn’t listen to your warning?

How about your when you’re trying to save your girlfriend and she’s not listening?

 

Get out to the theatre this weekend and see “Fright Night” we loved it… of course, if you’re too scared of vampires… or don’t want people to hear you scream or jump in public, we understand.

Oh No! Another Vampire Movie? “Fright Night” is Like No Other….

You might think “Fright Night” falls into that “just another vampire movie” category, but you’ll be surprised to find it is more and you might find yourself jumping out of your seat.

A good movie starts with a good story… 

“What I loved about the script is that there are really horrific moments that are very scary and also very human moments,” director Craig Gillespie says. “It wasn’t just a straight genre film. Marti managed to balance thriller, humor and horror.”

Re-imagined from the 1985 Cult Classic “Fright Night”

Colin Farrell, who plays the role of Jerry the vampire is such a fan of the original film that he has seen it at least 12 times. How many times have you seen it?

“Fright Night” is re-imagined from the 1985 cult classic of the same name and is directed by Craig Gillespie and has a great cast which includes Anton Yelchin, Colin Farrell, Christopher Mintz‐Plasse, David Tennant, Imogen Poots and Toni Collette. Talk about experience, screenwriter, Marti Noxon, used to write for the popular TV series “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.”

Here’s a clip called “neighborly chat” with Colin Farrell which sets the tone for some of the parts where (no spoiler here….) you’ll have to discover in the theater!

When they turn the lights down in the theater, be sure to know who’s sitting around you before “Fright Night” in 3D starts to roll… That’s the only tip we’ll give you as this horror‐film reveals an imaginative take on a cult classic from 1985, one we’re sure you’ll be talking about!

Have some scary fun for us while watching “Fright Night” from DreamWorks and come back and tell us how you liked it!!.

As director Craig Gillespie concludes, “This ‘Fright Night’ is a great addition to the canon of Vampire films. Some of the scenes are going to be hard to watch, in the best possible sense, but there are also some very warm, sincere moments, as well as just flat‐ out humor.”

“Fright Night” opens in theaters nationwide on August 19, 2011

Impulse: Short Film with Chris Masterson… he’s not Malcolm’s Brother Anymore

Impulse : Short Film

Chris Masterson in Impulse, Short Film

Last night, I had the privilege to speak with some of principle members of the talented team behind this new short, Impulse a film we’re so looking forward to seeing on Thursday the 29th at the closing of the 2010 LA Shorts International Film Festival (seems they are saving the best for last…)

So, the thing about film festivals the process is a long road and … you can’t share clips until after the festival… and if you are in lots of festivals, well, it will be a long time before a clip is out there. With that said, the producers of the film have given us some cool stills  to share with you – a behind the scenes look. If you’re in Los Angeles or a city where this film will be screened, you should check it out. Here’s where to buy tickets for the LA Shorts Film Festival going on this week.

ABOUT THE FILM: Impulse

When deadly events unfold around a small town, a man and his guitar race through the community fighting to stay alive. His perilous journey amidst death and destruction brings him to his final and most significant act.

(Yeah… no spoilers here but I love this type of genre… I live on thrillers, good bad or indifferent, I like to figure out what, where and why and I’m excited to see this one… and not just because of the leading man.)

Now, we’re also fans of FOX’s hit TV show Malcolm in the Middle, and this film has Chris Masterson starring as the lead. If you’re looking for an exciting suspense thriller then come out to the world premiere of Impulse on the closing night of the LA Shorts Fest, July 29th.  Of course, you won’t see it anywhere until it runs the  film festival circuit through 2011. So, if you have a film festival coming to your city, come out and support these shorts – you could see 5-6 different films in one night, fresh and creative!

Chris Masterson, ImpulseJust because a film is a short form production, it doesn’t mean there is any less quality involved in the script, or the final product. Think about it, you don’t have 90 minutes Now here’s some more info about this film…

Making the Film: Impulse Unusual for a short film, Impulse boasts post-production services from such top-industry companies as Skywalker Sound and Company 3.

Digital Intermediate: Company 3 (Transformers 2, Star Trek)

Visual Effects: Quest Pictures

Score Recorded at: The Village Recorder (WALL·E, Walk the Line)

We will definitely have more background via video interviews for you after tonight’s red carpet and possibly a special interview with more of the team behind this film.

Chris Masterson, ImpulseOh… and we didn’t tell this to producer, Darren Brandl, last night on the phone, but we are really good about picking winners (like we knew the web series “The Bannen Way” would win a Streamy Award) however, we are putting our good wishes behind this film and will be following it and reporting back as it travels the film festival industry!
